The universe is thought to be around 13.8 billion years old, but a new study by researchers suggests it may be younger than 1.2 billion years old.
The research looked at Earth’s “observable measurements” comparing 50 different galaxies and replaced the Hubble Constant (H0) to come up with a new era. Experts used a new method to reconfigure the Tully-Fisher approach, which was used to measure light in the universe, to come up with its conclusion.
“The problem of distance, as is known,” said Oregon physicist and lead author of the study, “It is incredibly difficult because galaxies have very large distances and the signposts for their distances are faint and difficult to examine.” ” a statement.
Universe 2 Billion Years Younger, After Shocking Study Science
With new calculations, H0, which measures the expansion rate of the universe, is now 75.1, indicating that the universe is about 12.6 billion years old. At 13.8 billion years old, Hubble Constant was 70 years old.
While Schombert’s approach gives a different kind of different statistic to the age of the universe than has been commonly used, it is not the only way to give different figures. In the 1990s, there was an astronomical astronomical debate over the age of the universe that was thought to have been settled.
Scientists can estimate the age of the universe by using stars’ moves to measure how fast it is expanding. If the universe is expanding rapidly, it means that it has got to its current size more quickly and therefore should be relatively smaller.

In 2013, a team of European scientists looked at the leftover radiation from the Big Bang and described the expansion rate as slowing to 67. In 2019, Nobel Laureate astrophysicist Adam Rees of the Institute of Space Telescope Sciences used NASA’s Super Telescope and came up with one. Number of 74. And earlier this year another team came in with 73.3.
Traditionally, the Hubble constant has been set to 75, but another approach to measuring light in the universe, the Cosmic Microwave Approach, sets it to 67. However, Schombert stated that the two measurements must still come at the same age of the universe.
The lower part of a rare college wall is built on different sizes.
“The tension in the area is caused by the fact that it does not,” he said. “This difference lies well outside observational errors and is a major cause of friction in the cosmological community.”
However, more research is needed to gain a better understanding of the age of the universe and the physics involved, Scombert explained.
“Our resulting value is on the higher side of the various schools of cosmology, indicating that our understanding of the physics of the universe is incomplete with the hope of new physics in the future.”
The study was published in the Astronomical Journal.
